About the Selection of Special Programs

As for HIROSHIMA 2020, we regret that all screening programs are cancelled due to the festival format change and its scale reduction.
However, in spite of such conditions, we are pleased to select the following six special programs, because we would like to introduce high quality animation short films from recent years as much as possible. These works will not be shown publicly, not as online screening either, but only be announced on our official website.
